wherever you're told to

  pip install foo

instead do

  python -m pip install foo

it should take care of the path problems you're having, and is now the
recommended way anyway since that way the things you install are sure to
match the running python version.

(the "python -m name" stanza means "python, please run 'name' as a module)
