SharePoint 2013: New-SPSite Error - The Authority/Host could not be parsed.

I was attempting to create a new site collection using PowerShell in SharePoint 2013. When executing the cmdlet, I received an error:

New-SPSite : Invalid URI: The Authority/Host could not be parsed.


I was logged into the server as the administrator so I thought I was good; apparently not. I needed to run SharePoint 2013 Management Shell as administrator to resolve the issue:

from start menu
 
from task bar
