After seven years of faithfully following her spiritual teacher, Renee Linnell realized she was in a Buddhist cult and had been severely brainwashed. She had graduated magna cum laude with a double degree. She had traveled to nearly fifty countries alone before she turned thirty-five. She was a surf model and a professional tango dancer. She had started five different companies and was getting an MBA from NYU. She is now an author of book, "The Burn Zone" and currently she is working on starting a publishing company to give people from diverse walks of life an opportunity to tell their stories.
