ImportError: No module named django.core.management when using manage.py

I'm trying to run

python manage.py runserver
on a Django application I have and I get this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "manage.py", line 8, in <module>
from django.core.management import execute_from_command_line
ImportError: No module named django.core.management


Here is the output of
pip freeze | grep -i django
to show I do in fact have Django installed:

Django==1.6.5
django-cached-authentication-middleware==0.2.0
django-cors-headers==1.1.0
django-htmlmin==0.7.0
django-static-precompiler==0.9
djangorestframework==2.3.14


Also, trying to run
/usr/local/bin/python2.7 manage.py runserver
yields the same error.

Answer

To fix my problem I used the following line in my .zprofile:

export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages

I was trying to import Django and it couldn't be found, and doing the above solved the issue.
